Cover: an introduction

My muse developed when I started reading Russian poetry (Anna Achmatova), but most of all, when I first paid attention to Russian icons and, more precisely, to the clochard figure, as an omnipresent (existing in every place and time) person, from whom we turn our glance away.
People who expect to watch the garments as they come inside, could be disappointed. Rangy, imploring figures are put behind a sheet of glazed plexiglass, in order to tampon a visual collision. Observing is an exercise, the viewer can watch them or not.

As the garments, also this installation is made of one only piece (of oxidized copper) cut on one side to permit the visitors to sit down.
